Adam Lubinsky was in Northampton, MA for this interview. He spoke about his work with WXY architecture + urban design firm and how Covid 19 has affected the project goals of the school districts he works with. Pre-pandemic, Lubinsky found that NYC schools were more invested in integrating schools. Since Covid 19, there has been a loss of faith in the public school system, causing a flight of families from those schools.
